I watched it, still have it on my DVR actually. It wasn't bad, though I just like the shiny Mustang, could give a crap less about the story line and the cheesy humor, as long as the exhaust note is loud and there is lots of smoke from burning rubber.

Yup, I am a guy, show me boobs, or a shiny, loud, fast car and I lose all comprehensive thought and become a drooling club toting caveman.

We all have our hobbies, and I have been working on cars all my life. It's a family affair I think. When my dad was alive we used to spend most of our afternoons/evenings/weekends restoring old cars. Then it passed on to my oldest brother who has restored 4 Camaro's already and sold them, now his new project is a 1969 Mustang Mach I.

I still remember spending most of my childhood on a dragstrip somewhere or a swap-meet or some random car show.

If my dad and I were argueing and we seen a classic car driving down the road or something it's like we just forgot what we were argueing about and start talking about the car we had jsut seen. It is something we both enjoyed, as a father and son. Now I own a 1996 Mustang GT that I have been "improving" since I bought it and one day it will get passed on to my son/daughter and we can spend our time under the hood of a car doing something together.

Some family's fish/hunt together, some BBQ, go boating, hiking, or some other random activity that you all enjoy. My family just happened to be into cars.

Way to generalise it as a male thing though. Good job.

I think once you're describing more than 68% (or one standard deviation) of a population, a generalisation is a pretty fair statement.

eg. chicks dig flowers.

It's a generalisation, not all chicks dig flowers, but the large majority enjoy them (pick a number, but I'd expect 70%+ at the very least).

If you require a statement to be completely inclusive of an entire population you're restricting pretty much any general statement at all. Umm, yep that'd be a fun place to be :roll:

Never got on with Cars. I've lived either in towns so small you can comfortably walk across them in under an hour or cities so congested you're practically penalised for owning a vehicle.

I do like boobs, but not to the level that they distract me from the underlying quality of something for more than say, five minutes.
Be careful when you argue with trolls, lest you become one.

Well Levantine, as Bubblecannon put it, it was a general statement, I do know a few women that love to get their hands dirty working on cars or fondling boobs, but for the most part guys have that market cornered.

Having a fascination with cars is just the environment I was brought up in. I wasn't trying to stereotype, I was trying to be demeaning in any way, I was just making a general statement.

If I offended you then I apologize.

:eyeroll:

Stop being so picky about it. Honestly. If you're not into cars, then you're not into cars.

We can't be all "Well, all men love cars. Except for Levantine, Songblade, Aalryn, Joe, Mark, Matthew, Peter, James, Xavier, Jimmy, Aaron, Monkey over there, Amon, Zeke, Isaiah, George, Jordan, Tony, Neil, Ferenz, Hubert (...)" ad infinitum.
